Healing From Grief

Grieving from the loss of a life is one of the most painful emotional experiences humans endure. Everyone grieves differently and everyone expresses his or her grief differently.

Eventually, we get to a point where we want to share our thoughts about those who have passed on. A carefully considered and expressive tribute is one way to pay our respects. In truth, the creation of this tribute may add insight to the existing memorial.

This is one of the reasons so many subscribers are using the three step services of Imorial.com to create everlasting and interactive online memorials for their loved ones. Because people grieve in different ways and for different periods of time, Imorial.com allows the friend or loved one to post their tribute when the time is right for them. It may not seem like it at the time of the shocking news, but when the time is right the posting of a lasting tribute is not only quite healing but is a loving, caring gesture.

Imorial.com now has more than 14,000 members, nearly 6,000 memorials and 35,000 tributes. These tributes range from shared stories to poems and even some humorous remembrances.

Imorial has made it easy to create a meaningful memorial allowing for the uploading of photos and movies as well as tributes from family and friends. Yes, grieving is difficult, but it is part of life that we all learn to survive.

Psychiatrist Elizabeth Kubler-Ross identified five stages of grief. Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance are the stages humans go through in dealing with grief. These stages do not occur in the same order or time frame for people.

Grieving is the most personal emotion. Some people take months to reach acceptance while others need years. By creating a lasting memorial on Imorial.com, family and loved ones are assured a healing place to post their tributes. When remembering your friend or loved one, subscribers can spend some private time at the online memorial and ease the grieving by sharing special thoughts from admiring friends.

We learn from grieving and expressing our grief. Imorial.com reminds us how special the gift of life is as we honor our loved one.
